Set the earth on fire

When we come to pray, when we come to Mass, the Lord gives us far more than we can ask or imagine. He gives us His very Self. He meets us personally, in an encounter that is far from frivolous and much wiser than despair. Jesus comes as a fire that we cannot manipulate; as a flame that frees from distorted notions that surround us, about masculinity or femininity, lies about marriage, chaste living and the dignity of every person.
